Anyone who has ever started a small business knows what a daunting task it can be. Here at DK Rus Law, we’ve helped hundreds of business owners with their dream, and we can help you too. We wanted to take some time today to talk about how you can benefit from working with a professional business attorney in Maryland.
Choose a Suitable Business Structure
Maryland makes it easy for people to form an LLC, partnership or corporation online. But how do you know which business structure is right for you? Choosing the right type of business structure is one of the most important decisions you will make when starting a new business. Failure to properly establish your business with the right business structure could lead to tax and legal problems in the future. An experience business lawyer can advise you on the different kinds of business structures, and which one fits your needs best.
Agreements and Contracts
If you are going to have business partners, it is very important to have an agreement with them to avoid misunderstandings or legal problems later on. Forming your own business online, or through one of those legal substitute websites, does not provide you with the agreement you will need to protect yourself and the business. You may also need contracts for employees, independent contractors, vendors, or customers. Having agreement and contracts drafted by an experienced business lawyer can avoid expensive legal problems in the future. Your lawyer can also review contracts other people have drafted that they want you to sign, to make sure that you know exactly what you are getting into. (The courts are fully of cases where people wish they had gotten a contract written or reviewed by a lawyer, and not tried to do it themselves.)
Prevent Future Lawsuits
Businesses are legal entities, and while no one wants to go through a lawsuit, the best business owners are always prepared for that possibility. A relationship with an experienced business attorney can help you get the documents and advice you need to protect your business from potential legal attacks.
